5 Things You Need to Know if You’re Considering a Brazilian Butt Lift

Right now, the booty is big. Inspired by “bootylicious” celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé, women around the country are embracing their bottoms. If you’re not naturally blessed with a voluptuous bottom, the Brazilian butt lift may be your solution. If you’re considering the treatment, keep reading for five things you need to know.

A Brazilian Butt Lift Isn’t Butt Implants

Many people confuse the Brazilian butt lift with other derriere enhancing procedures like butt implants. In reality, implants and the Brazilian butt lift are entirely different. Butt implants are silicone-filled pouches that are placed deep with the tissue of each buttock. The Brazilian butt lift is a fat transfer procedure. Unwanted fat is removed from another area on the body (often the abdomen), purified, and then injected into the butt. Once the transferred fat takes hold, it provides long lasting enhancement without the need for implants.

Liposuction + Butt Enhancement = Even Better Results

The Brazilian butt lift is a two part procedure: liposuction plus booty enhancement. This makes the results of your treatment even more noticeable. Many women will need some sort of liposuction to achieve their dream silhouette, even with butt-enhancing surgery. The Brazilian butt lift packs a two-part punch. The liposuction helps to create the ideal silhouette and the fat transfer creates that perfectly rounded bottom you’ve always wanted. You’ve never looked so good!

What’s Recovery Like?

When considering any cosmetic procedure, recovery is a big concern on many patients’ minds. With the Brazilian butt lift, you may need to limit sitting in the early weeks after treatment (your surgeon will give you specific recovery instructions). Most patients take a couple of weeks off from work and spend this time resting and giving their body time to heal. Talk with us about any specific recovery questions you might have.

The Surgeon You Choose Matters

The Brazilian butt lift is a highly specialized procedure and requires an expert hand for the best results. Choose your surgeon carefully. Ask to see results from former patients and make sure you like what you see.

Brazilian Butt Lifts Last

Many women worry that the results of their Brazilian butt lift won’t last. They think that fat transfers will work like dermal fillers, there one day and gone a few months later. This isn’t how a Brazilian butt lift works. It’s actually a type of fat grafting. The fat that is moved will become a long lasting part of your body. Some fat loss is normal after a transfer, but once you’ve recovered, the fat that remains will stay. Of course, the results can change with time. These fat cells will act like the other fat cells in your body and will grow and shrink as you gain and lose weight.
